“An attorney who represents herself has a fool for a client. Our insurance company paired us up with Allison Wood to prepare our ARDC defense, and we are so glad they did. After providing Allison with the history of the case and our prospective on what had happened in the complainant’s case, she crafted a response to the ARDC that described what happened in a much more eloquent manner than we would have done. Going through an ARDC complaint is stressful and emotional, and with Allison handling our response, it took a lot of the stress away. We knew that we had not done anything wrong, but when your license is at stake, it is important to get a professional to handle your response. We highly recommend using Allison for your disciplinary defense”.
– K.B. lawyer

She is genuinely interested in her clerks’ perspectives because she knows that a diversity of perspectives will help her better serve her clients.”

I greatly enjoyed Allison’s insightful and informative presentation on Legal Ethics. Allison brought a unique perspective to the topic of legal ethics having worked as a practicing attorney, Hearing Board Chair and Litigation Counsel with the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (“ARDC”). The presentation was well researched and chocked full of useful case citations presented in a creative and engaging style that held the interest of all the participants. Allison’s mastery of the subject matter was clear throughout the presentation as she drew upon a deep reservoir of real world experiences as examples and cautionary tales to underscore her points. She will be my “go to” person on any issues that arise involving legal ethics.”
